Fork rebuild help

Discussion in 'Motorbike Technical Discussion' started by Bryan Havenstein, Jul 8, 2003.

  1. Can a '95 YZ250 fork have it's oil seals changed without removing the
    compression bolt and damper rod/piston?

    My friend is doing the same work on his '00 WR400F, which has very similar
    forks. He did not need to remove these parts. Just removed the spring and
    the seal retaining clip, then pulled the fork tube and slider apart, with
    the oil seal popping out.

    I tried this on mine, and it won't budge. I'm afraid to pull harder, since
    the repair manual makes it sound like the damper and compression bolt must
    be removed first.

    I don't have the special tools required to remove them, and would rather not
    have to buy them.

    Any input?
